IEEE Blockchain Conformity Assessment Program

INTRODUCTION

With the increased use of blockchain technology by companies for various applications and solutions, there are no unified specifications and requirements for technical platform, system architecture, data format, application scenarios and service capability. The IEEE Computer Society Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Standards Committee (BDLSC) and the IEEE Conformity Assessment Program (ICAP) are jointly developing a conformity assessment program to ensure blockchain systems and products, can demonstrate conformance to related IEEE standards.


IEEE BLOCKCHAIN AND DISTRIBUTED LEDGER STANDARDS
 

The IEEE Computer Society Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Standards Committee (BDLSC) manages the development of IEEE 2418TM series and other standards for blockchain and distributed ledger. These encompass relevant data formats for application to specific sectors, industries, and processes.

The IEEE BDLSC will standardize the implementation of blockchain systems across various industry verticals such as agriculture, autonomous driving, IoT, energy and healthcare. These standards aim to support interoperability between blockchain systems.

CONFORMITY ASSESSMENT COMMITTEE
 

The IEEE Blockchain certification program is being developed by the IEEE Blockchain Conformity Assessment Committee (BCAC), comprised of industry stakeholders, that will benefit users, manufacturers, solution providers, regulators, and other potential beneficiaries. The goal of the BCAC is to produce a unified test and evaluation specification aligned with current and future IEEE blockchain standards.

IEEE is issuing a call for participation for entities to join this committee. The main objectives of this committee will likely include:


 
OBJECTIVES
  • Demonstrate to buyers that blockchain products or systems conform to the IEEE BDL standards
  • Advise on the IEEE blockchain certification scheme requirements
  • Define competency and audit requirements to become an IEEE recognized test laboratory
  • Develop procurement language and advise on the IEEE Certified Mark

 

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE
  • Manufacturers, Integrators, Solution Providers
  • End-user Communities (Healthcare, Energy, IoT, etc.)
  • Government Regulators
  • Test Laboratories
  • Academia
